Hello! Welcome to my site.

My name is Sonya, and I have many interests and backgrounds which lead in some form or another to the past.

I am an artist, writer, and a spouse. I love to road-trip, camp, hike, cook and discover little plants and fungi I have never seen. I especially love to create with my hands. -Ever an enthusiastic learner of all things passed down, old fashioned, and archaic in nature, I am eager to discover how our grandparent’s grandparents lived.

I dedicate these collections of articles and shreds of “know-how” to all those who have struggled and learned along the way to show us what they’ve discovered. From Basic Home Economics, to Survivalist Knowledge, and a touch of Science, we strive to be plum-full of things to learn. My hopes are to truly invite the glow of a well stocked hearth without needing a fireplace, to everyone. These are my personal collections to help make life meaningful and beautiful, no matter who you are or where you live!
